Parlia is an encyclopedia of opinion, which accumulates knowledge of arguments on diverse topics to provide a tool for democratic debate. It is a collaborative participatory project of opinion mapping which requires contributions by its diverse, global community.

Mission and Purpose

Parlia is an encyclopedia of opinion. There is a finite number of arguments about any given question and Parlia is building a diverse and global community to map the positions out, thereby providing a tool for debate and deliberation.

Parlia seeks to build an encyclopedia of all the arguments and opinions in the world - an atlas of ideas.

A Knowledge Project

What Wikipedia has done for facts, Parlia seeks to do for opinions.

Parlia's particular taxonomy of argument has been build out and tested with the Royal College of Art and Liverpool University.

A Tool for Civil Discourse

Parlia's mission statement declares:

"Debate and argument is how we build our values. At scale, it is how we decide what kind of states we want to live in: argument is the foundation stone of democracy."

Parlia seeks to enable, accelerate and celebrate civil debate. Helping its users understand their own beliefs, and understand the landscape of beliefs around them.

Origins and Development

Parlia was ideated in 2017 by Turi Munthe and J Paul Neeley.

Turi Munthe is a media entrepreneur and journalist; he founded Demotix, a crowd-sourced news site that became the world's largest network of photojournalists.

J Paul Neeley is Service Designer and entrepreneur. He has taught all over the world, consulted with governments and Fortune 500 companies, and founded Yossarian Lives, a metaphorical search engine.

Organizational Structure, Membership, and Funding

Parlia is owned by Jadala Corp, a Delaware C Corp.

Parlia received a Prototype Google DNI Grant[1] in 2018, followed by a Paul Hamlyn 'Ideas and Pioneers' Grant in 2019 to test their hypothesis. In late 2019, Parlia received venture support and launched in January 2020.
